Overclockers Australia heeft een review van de Asus K7M geplaatst, met vanzelfsprekend ook info over de overklokbaarheid van deze slot-A plank. Helaas blijkt dat het bord, net zoals bij eerdere reviews, weigert te draaien op busspeeds boven 110MHz FSB :
..and now I was set for some overclocking! 110MHz FSB, or 550MHz from our 500 unit, was a no brainer, simply change the FSB setting in the BIOS. It ran stable for a couple of hours of Driver (this stress testing is terrible work, I can tell you) with SETI in the background. 120 refused to POST. 115 would lock up halfway through loading Win98. 111 would load Win98 but crash shortly after loading Driver. Opening the case and ducting cold air onto the CPU fans with another fan prolonged it slightly, but the results were similar. I tried boosting the core voltage using the jumpers on the board (vcore adjust in the bios woulda been nice, guys) .. from the default 1.6v to 1.7v made no difference, at 1.8v it made no difference except the board beeped continuously during the boot process.. I decided not to try any higher (the board allows up to 2.0v) with this cooling. Even setting the mysterious "VIO" jumper to the highest setting, which is supposed to boost the voltage to the chipset, ram, PCI etc had no effect.
